, elected representatives now saying, you know, i'm rethinking whether there should be a no tax pledge. >> true. that's on the senate side. on the house side, revenue was on the table a long time ago, as in last summer of 2011 and said if we reform the tax code, clear junk deductions out that for the upper brackets, there's more revenue and simplifies the system, and at its best, the tax code is designed to be as simple as possible which is a mess right now, and if you clear that out, people going back to making profit. when i was growing up, profit was a six-letter word, but now it's a four-letter word, and if you make a profit, people want to punish you. gerri: if it was simple, people wouldn't know what to do. >> i do, i understand, but that's the way we get taxes in is that people make more profit, then we have more tax revenue. gerri: what about what bowles had to say in i want you to listen to him. >> okay. >> i'm not encouraged or discouragedded. i'm really worried that we have a real probability we could go over the cliff, and that would be catastrophic. gerri: here's somebody

decimated but gop senators say it is proof rice was putting pre-election spin before national security. >> it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama three weeks before an election. >> reporter: ambassador rice, what do you say to republicans who say your comments were politically motivated? rice didn't answer our question but admitted her talking points were, quo, incorrect in a key respect. there was no protest or demonstration in benghazi. while we certainly wish that we had had perfect information just days after the terrorist attack, as is often the case, the intelligence assessment has evolved. we stressed that neither i nor anyone else in the administration intended to mislead the american people at any stage in this process. and the white house had this to say. >> the focus on some might say obsession on comments made on sunday shows seems, to me, and to many, to be misplaced. >> reporter: gop senators also complain rice neglected to ask key questions before telling the public what turned out to be wrong information. >> that's tr

election. so there you have it. >> dana, real quickly here, what does she want to know from ambassador rice? is there something specific that she didn't get, part of an explanation that she needs to know he in order to resolve this? >> reporter: well, she has lots of questions but she did introduce a new wrinkle into the whole question about susan rice's qualifications or experience, probably the better way to put it, and that wrinkle is that back in 1998, the bombings of the u.s. embassies across africa, susan rice at the time was assistant secretary of state for africa. so what senator collins said she was asking was whether or not she was part of the team that denied those embassies who apparently were begging at the time for more security, deny them more security. what senator collins said is that ambassador rice said she would have to refresh her memory, it was a lot of years ago, her role in that process. that's a new wrinkle here. we've heard a lot about benghazi and the current history but not going back all of those years. >> dana, thank you so much. i want to focus on what senator
